Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Valletta: Mellieha (Popeye Village Malta & Mellieha Beach), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Marsalforn) and Ggantija Megalithic Temples (in Ggantija). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Co-Cathedral, take a leisurely stroll along Valletta Waterfront, explore the ancient world of Mnajdra, and admire the natural beauty at Upper Barrakka Gardens.

Land of Honey
Aside from the crystal azure waters and the soft sandy beaches in Malta, there is more ancient, medieval, and Baroque architecture here than most visitors have time for. Whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation spent people-watching and sun-bathing or a history lesson filled with fortified cities and catacombs, Malta lets you hop from island to island with a plethora of options. And with so much coastline wherever you are in Malta, opportunities for water sports abound, including snorkeling and diving. Despite the thriving tourism, many areas feel uncrowded due to lack of residency, leaving you space to enjoy the sun and sea at your own pace.
